    Little bit of help needed with ms word

    hiya.

    this little problem is driving the wife nuts, when she scrolls up and down past this certain block of text it seems to be jumping from single to 1.5 line spacing, and anywhere inbetween, making the text look like it does in the pic below. Now if you minimise the doc and then maximise it looks better, but its line and a half spaced, until you scroll again.

    fyi its windows vista and office 2007.



    cheers

    She would happen to be using a mouse where the wheel is also a button, is she?

    It sounds like either a video driver or printer driver issue. I'd recommend two things:

    1. Try winword /a to make sure that Word is working okay and that it's an external influence. Click Start > Run > type winword /a and hit enter. winword /a starts Word without loading normal.dot or any add-ins.

    2. Try Windows safe mode. If it works there, then it's either the video driver (as safe mode loads a generic video driver) or the printer driver (as safe mode doesn't load a default printer).

    If it works okay in 1, then we've got an easy solution. More likely, it'll work in 2; so try updating your video driver and/or printer driver.

    hope this helps

    Well theres part of the answer - the scrolly pad has a button option which used to do it to me but ... as to the arrows check the key code options in word. it could be shes hitting a button combo without realishing. Again I have done this on ms office 2002+
